Just sharing a few pics of the Jem and the Holograms birthday party I threw for my daughter a few years ago. It was themed for “Jem and the Holograms” bc my daughter and I went through a phase where we watched the whole series together and she loved it. Of course I have the whole thing on DVD.
What is Jem and the Holograms?
Not alot of people remember this cartoon TV series. It was on during the 80s and definitely targeted the young girl crowd, and I was hooked ever since. But just in case you don’t believe me that it’s a real show that actually happened, you can check out all the scoop on Wikipedia. 🙂
I was mostly addicted to the music, as Jem was a rockstar/popstar and had the catchiest songs and the most outrageous fashion.
She was also a real-life person with a real-life job and real-life responsibilities raising foster kids. Her real-life persona was Jerrica, and she had to keep her rockstar persona a secret from everyone.
Holy smokes. Kinda like me with this blog. I’m using the alias Pepper Valentine here (lol, my rockstar name), and I am keeping this blog a secret from everyone in my real-life so I can be uncensored and unedited here, and have no real-life consequences for being myself.
Anyhow, the reason she had to keep her identity such a secret was because she had a secret supercomputer (in the 80s!) that created all the music and all the fashion via holograms that looked real to everyone else. And she thought that if that supercomputer was discovered, that it could be used for evil purposes. She was using it simply to be a rockstar.
So that’s a quick summary as to why I am a “Jem and the Holograms” fan. I’m a bit obsessed with the series still, and I have fun creating projects that are inspired by Jem, like my daughter’s birthday party. We even dressed up as Jem and the Holograms for Halloween one year! I have those costume pics saved on another blog post you can link to here.
